Knockouts Title Match Set for This Week’s Impact

New Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky will be defending her title just one week after winning it, and she’s battling the former champion.

Tara, who joint holds the record for most reigns with the belt at 5, will cash in her rematch clause in familiar territory, the Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida.

Velvet won the championship, her second, in London, England last week after besting the aforementioned Tara, Brooke Tessmacher and Gail Kim in a four-way elimination match.

Tara was eliminated first after being pinned by Gail, yet she didn’t have Jessie at ringside with her, so surely he will be a big factor to consider come her rematch later this week.

Are you excited for the match? Do you think Velvet will retain or will she suffer yet another short reign with the gold?

    Lets go Velvet!!!

    • Ryan

      Man! So many negative comments o_o

      Well doesn’t matter because it beneath it all. Velvet Sky rocks and she’s champ!! AND she’s gonna be on TV baby!!

      Haters, just don’t watch and stay away from the comments :)

      TNA is gonna be totally awesome!!

      • k2evecrew

        Ppl are very harsh on her but regardless of what they say she is the most popular knockout they have right now so she’s gonna be in the title picture.

        • Jinzo

          Exactly. Clearly the people that bash her are wrong. Not even the smart mark crowds like the UK hate her, and normally crowds like that hate anyone that sucks. So obviously only a very VERY small amount of people have a problem with her otherwise the smart crowds would’ve hopped on the Velvet hate wagon by now.

        • divaindemise

          The reason why Velvet Sky is not as abhorred by the crowds as the wrestling snobs would prefer is because she’s extremely fan friendly. While it’s discernible to anyone that Sky is far from the most proficient of grapplers, to some she is deserving of her accolades due to her unwavering passion for the industry and committed work ethic. And personally I think some wrestling snobs need to adjust to the fact that one will find worse than Velvet Sky (and Kelly Kelly, since she’s often labelled along with her) on the independent scene they cherish dearly.

        • Getdownwithachola

          No hunny she is not the most popular Knockout today’s by any means, Mickie James she is like as popular as John Cena.

      • Kessuki

        i agree ryan!

    • VelvetLoveFan

      No, velvet is VERY popular in TNA. I think velvet is more popular I mean Velvet gets more cheers,.. Remember last year Velvet vs Mikcie in Wembly and velvet gotna louder reaction..

      • Getdownwithachola

        Thats only the people at Impact and IWC, but technically Mickie James is the most popular everytime you discuss wrestling with people they bring up Mickie Jame’s name a lot.

  • JD Sensations

    Meh I think I’ll skip impact this week

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    velvet ugghhh, gross,

  • shameronstar

    I thought tna didn’t have rematch clauses?

  • bxradimus

    This is getting to be ridiculous. Velvet is a terrible in-ring worker and Tara isn’t even half of what she used to be. I’m so sick of seeing these two face each other, and in general. The Knockouts Division used to be AMAZING. Now it’s worse than the Diva’s Division.

    TNA got rid of Knockouts that could have made it mean something again, while keeping a few that will make sure it’s never at it’s former glory. They desperately need to hire a new crop of girls.

    • Nostalgia

      I agree. Tara isn’t hungry any more

  • Superstar77

    The haters with their usual negative BS towards Velvet Sky. SMH

    Anyway it would be extremely retarded for Velvet to lose the title this quick after winning it back last week so hopefully she will retain. Though this is TNA and they have screwed her over before so I’m corcerned with that happening again.

    One more thing Angelina Love is a former 5x Knockout champion herself so Tara does not hold the record for most Knockout title reigns. Just wanted to throw that out there.

    • Nostalgia

      Angelina had 5 reigns, that’s why they said tied

      • Nostalgia

        And Velvet should hold the title at least 3 months. But she doesn’t deserve it. Cameron looks better in the ring than she does and Velvets been in the ring 10+ years

        • Superstar77

          Velvet has improved and she does deserve it! Sick of people saying she doesn’t.

        • velvelove

          Cameron is nowhere near velvet you are so hateful.

        • Nostalgia

          Hateful? No, but Cameron is more entertaining than Velvet

        • Gail-Trish-Brooke

          Cameron’s wheelbarrow armdrag is better than anything Velvet has done in the ring in ten years.

        • Hands.ofthe.Wicked

          Yeah that arm drag split thing Cameron does is a lot better than anything velvet has done haha, the only way velvet would be a credible champ is of she was heel still and had a flock off other knockouts helping her retain, bring back the beautiful people, that is the only time I ever liked velvet

  • k2evecrew

    Velvet isn’t gonna lose the title that quick.

  • wl75

    I guess this is just to clear the deck, as I suspect they might be going with a Velvet/Gail feud eventually..

    Though this means Ivelisse won’t do her Gut Check with Tara, which is disappointing because apparently they had a very good dark match a few months ago- So who does she face? I’d think either Gail or Mickie (I’d think between the two Gail probably would be a better fit for her).

    • Spike7000

      They are already advertising Gut Check for thursday on their site.

      They changed the format since January. Instead of one independent wrestler going up against a TNA wrestler, this time it’s 2 independent wrestlers going up against each other

    • BillyGP

      Mickie would be a good fit also as Mickie is a talented wrestler and a face for now and if Ivelissa comes in as a heel then Mickie be the right choice.

  • SoooSooo96

    And what about Ivelisse ?

    Will she be on TV ?

  • VelvetLoveFan

    Can’t wait to see this! I really don’t care what anyone says, Velvet is a whole lot better than what you make her out to be and she does deserve the title and she has it so just suck it up and accept it rather than be rude to her (not thatse cares tho).

  • wwesvrrocks101

    I like where it’s going. Because I think Gail Kim is gonna come out and attack Taryn. And who knows who else will? Mickie? Ivelisse?

  • redsandman99

    Eh. The last match they had didn’t wow me so I’m not expecting much.

  • Spike7000

    Looks like the Blossom twins were signed, check the ending of the first episode of TNA Backstage Pass

  • puppies

    Velvet ussually just doesn’t do it for me, but hopefully it’ll be good. It’s better that we get this rematch out of the way now and head to sinething new as opposed to dragging it on. One thing Velvet is good at is being on the mic, they need to feature that a lot more. Her and Tara never had one verbal exchange during their feud.


    Well….i hope Velvet have some new moves.I wish Tara win,..but no XD.

  • JD Sensations

    man TNA is such a mess right now.

    -where are the KO tag team titles??
    -where are Madison, ODB and Taeler Hendrix??
    -same boring matches with same predictable endings

    • BillyGP

      matches not been boring to me anyway.

      Taeler in OVW,ODB used once in a while and POOR Madison is MIA

  • divaindemise

    Velvet Sky looks older than Tara in that picture.

    I’m actually not completely against having her as champion, however, if they utilise her mic skills more. It’s the only way they’ll really provide backbone to her reign, because I just don’t think she’s going to be the workhorse that Tara, Brooke and Gail were as the previous champions.

  • divaindemise

    If Mickie James turns heel, she could easily form an embittered veteran stable with Tara and Gail. Fantasy booking, but having those three declare war against Velvet, Brooke and Taryn sounds extremely appealing to me. :)

  • K2Evefan

    Jack I know this is off topic but since I can no longer post in the original thread I have no choice but to post this here. I believe there has been a misunderstanding between us on your saturday morning slam redux lol. My comment was directed to the comment in your “thought” section of the redux where you said you thought natalya out of everyone had the least chemistry with kaitlyn on the wwe roster which is where my comment about aksana and tamina came in lol. In your response to my comment it sounded like you meant in that particular match. But I couldnt tell that from the redux lol.

  • BillyGP

    Velvet not terrible while she not the best she decent enough. Not long ago people was bitching she was gone and now she back people still bitching. LOL

    Well here hoping to Mickie getting involved and turning heel on Velvet.

  • Getdownwithachola

    Miss Velvet Sky is not that bad by any means but she and some girls should,ve stayed away from that belt, now that championship lost its credibility after those hot potato reigns with Winter,ODB,Tara,Angelina Love, and Madison Rayne, I say fuck it, its already ruined so even if a Bella Twin wins it it wouldn’t hurt. As of today the title is all about who could win it the most true but sad in-fact every time I think of the Kong/Wilde title feud and to where we at today I cry a bit


    • Kessuki

      not sure if your a divas fan/KO fan or both but as you say if tna’s KO belt has lost credibilty because of velvet, then might i add so did the womens championship when they had a very old moolah win from a young and fit ivory, harvey wippleman, debra, the kat and sable who took no bumps.

      a belt’s credibility can be rebuilt with a few solid title reigns and since gail kim returned the ko belt has been treated much better, meanwhile the bellas would never go to tna and wwe would welcome them back if they wanted to return to wrestling.

      And one of the bellas i’m not sure which one, is a decent wrestler so if she ever came to tna and got ringtime (more than that in wwe) i’m sure she’d surprise you. :)

  • MortSansMaryse

    Will Velvet defend her title successfully? Or Tara will regain the title again? Can’t wait for the match

  • hemme Wilde

    you know after watching the four way match i have to say velvet really impressed me, i wasnt exactly her biggest fan but she actually showed off some pretty good skill in the ring, and her in yo face looks freakin brutal for a facebuster, i mean you actually land on your face, there is no forearm to protect them lol so i say congrats velvel and keep up the good work, you can only get better and better!! as for tara please girl ive been a fan of yours since you started, please dump that useless piece of man meat that you insist on bringing out to the ring, i mean yeah hes a good fashion accessory and he matches all your outfits but even poison was more help than he is, and girl, you have never needed a man to win your matches for you dont think you do now, tara you are and always will be one of the best love you girl!!!

  • richies88

    i kind of agree with all the negative comment about these 2. I love velvet but here wrestling skill are non existing and as for Tara i don’t know as she goes further into her 40’s here skill are going to disappear she is actually can’t carry the knockout division at all the way Gail Kim can or Brooke tessmacher. ( i feel actually ashamed when i typed that) here skill set disappeared when she join TNA. i actually think the divas division is better than the knockout division.

  • Kessuki

    oooooooh lots of hate for velvet. nothing new with you lot then.

    just wanted to say i hope velvet wins. i’m not her biggest fan but i can’t see TNA have her lose the title so soon after winning – it may have happened once but this time there is no chance!!

    tna may have lost some knockouts and have velvet as KO champ but it’s STILL heaps better than the divas division atm where there is nothing interesting happening, natalya and alicia are regularly bookedlooking weak and they have rosa, aksana, tamina killing me with their lifeless matches. the only interesting diva currently is naomi and she’s not had a single match yet – says it all. :D
